Weekend All Things Considered

Weekends at 5 p.m. on WABE's Live Stream

The flagship NPR program is now on weekends! During each broadcast of All Things Considered, stories and reports come to listeners from NPR reporters and correspondents based throughout the United States and the world. Host Michel Martin interview newsmakers and contributes her own reporting.

Tonight, dancer Calvin Royal III will take center stage for a special spotlight performance at the Vail Dance Festival — where he's this year's artist-in-residence. He'll dance to Dinah Washington's "This Bitter Earth," a piece, he says, that often makes audiences burst into tears.

And finally today, it's been five years since the music icon Prince suddenly and tragically passed away. In his Paisley Park studios, Prince left a literal vault filled with hundreds, if not thousands of unreleased songs and pieces of music. Now some of it is being released for the public to hear. "Welcome 2 America" is a collection of songs Prince had worked on in 2010.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "WELCOME 2 AMERICA")

PRINCE: Welcome to America, where you can fail at your job, get fired, rehired and get a $700 billion tip.
